How to properly remove mascara without losing eyelashes?

During make-up removal the most difficult part includes the removal of mascara. Especially the waterproof one. Do you know how to remove make-up as to wash your lashes thoroughly without destroying them?

Make-up removal – don’t you dare skip it

Sometimes the only thing we want to do after a hard day is to drown in our bed. First, however, we must remove our make-up. This is very important because our skin and eyelashes regenerate during sleeping. Having make-up on could hinder this process and even deteriorate the skin condition, cause irritation, eyelash loss, etc.

To avoid these problems, you also need to know the rules of make-up removal and choose the right products. Improperly chosen cosmetics and wrong technique can worsen the general condition of eyelashes.

Which products to use?

Generally speaking, oily products help remove make-up better. Natural oils, such as argan oil, coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil, can be used to remove waterproof mascaras. The properties of oils are also used in two-phase make-up removers.

For people who don’t like oily formulas a good option is micellar water. It is becoming more and more popular because it removes make-up effectively and gently. This is because micellar water consists of micelles – molecules that absorb pollutants.

Make-up removal step-by-step:

Step 1. Soak the cotton pad in the make-up remover.

Step 2. Place the cotton pad on your eye. Don’t rub, just wait 2 minutes.

Step 3. Gently wipe the make-up towards the outer corner of the eye.

Step 4. Repeat with more pads until it is clean.

In addition, they contain the most harmful ingredients. In other words, if you use them, you consciously agree to the deterioration of your eyelashes condition. It’s not worth it!
